Ekstein Backs Kaizer Chiefs To Lift the Nedbank Cu
Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Hendrick Pule Ekstein believes they have what it takes to go all the way and lift the Nedbank Cup.
A first-half goal from Eric Mathoho was enough to lead them to a 1-0 victory at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium over Baroka FC.
“I want to firstly thank my family and God for everything, and I made a promise on Thursday that I’m going to play well and promised the fans we’re going to do well and go to the next round,” Ekstein told SuperSport after the game.
Ekstein, who admitted during the week of his dissatisfaction with his progress ever since promotion to the first-team in 2014, is pleased with the help from all concerned in this regard.
“I only have two to three goals if I’m not mistaken, and have no assist. But I’m happy with the help from the first team players, legends and coach they have been given me,” he said.
“We owe it to our fans. We have to do well for our team and supporters because it’s been two seasons without anything so this is our chance (to win it).
”Yes, we are confident (of winning the cup) and we’re going to win this cup,” he added.
